Suspect charged in shooting death of man on Cedar Street in Norfolk

UPDATE (1/29/2018): Norfolk detectives have charged 21-year-old Jahmel A. Hicks, of the 1600 block of Berkley Avenue, with the shooting death of 20-year-old Antonio I. Parker. He's being held at the Norfolk City Jail without bond.


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) -- Norfolk Police say a 20-year-old man was shot and killed in the 800 block of Cedar Street Sunday evening.

When officers arrived on scene just after 5:15 p.m., they found the victim, Antonio Parker, inside an apartment with a gunshot wound.

Medics took him to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital for treatment, however, he died shortly after.

Robert Ford tells 10 On Your Side he called to check on his 78-year-old aunt who lives across the hall from where the man was shot. "She just told me she heard gunshots and she was scared," he said.

Ford said his aunt had just moved to the Clairmont at Campostella Station apartments and he's worried about the crime. "This neighborhood is pretty quiet. But, it's still right across from the projects so that why you'll see a lot of crime rate over here."

Detectives have not given any information about a potential suspect or motive for the shooting.

This is the second homicide and sixth shooting overall within a 48-hour period in Hampton Roads.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Line at (888) LOCK-U-UP.
